ElectriCritters, River Bend Nature Center’s annual lighted Christmas display will be open from 6:30 to 8:30 pm every Friday and Saturday night from November 19th through December 20th and Saturday, December 26th. With the flip of a switch, more than 60,000 lights on more than 150 lighted displays will glitter and sparkle, bringing the sights and sounds of the season to adults and children. Santa, Mrs. Claus, and the Butterfly Queen will make an appearance each night. After exploring the lighted grounds come on in to the Candy Cane Café and enjoy hot chocolate and apple cider, feast on hot cookies and popcorn, and shop for holiday gifts and stocking stuffers. River Bend is stroller and wheelchair accessible. ElectriCritters is the major fundraiser for River Bend Nature Center. Proceeds help fund education programs enjoyed by over 35,000 children and adults of our community each year. Presale tickets are on sale now in the River Bend Nature Gift Shop for $4 per person; it will be $5 at the door, and children ages 1 and under are admitted free!
